Lord, I need your help!  I don’t know what to do.

My husband (ex now) had suffered another devastating bought of depression.  He had not been able to work for 9 months.  This was a crisis, without a doubt.  I did all that I could in order to put one foot in front of another each day.  I continued to pray, asking for a miracle.

I had no idea how we would be able to pay the bills again this month even though I was working 3 jobs now.  I had to trust God to provide for us in a way I had not had to before.

I wish this crisis had a happily ever after ….  the depression lifted but we continued to struggle. I did the best I could to obey the Lord and repay all that we had borrowed.

Eventually I was able pay off the mountain of debt we accumulated but it was not without 5 years of hard work. It would have been nice if the miracle had come and I didn’t have to pay the price of our choices.  That just isn’t how God works most of the time.  He did continue to be faithful.  I am thankful His presence was never absent in this crisis or the many more to come.

Psalm 37:21

“The wicked borrows but does not pay back, but the righteous is generous ….”
